[p2p-hackers] Crawling supernodes.

I am trying to get my client to build a topological map of the supernodes
that I am connected to in Gnutella. Considering the various ways
supernodes pick nodes
to return in pong messages, can I still assume that any hosts returned by
a pinged host are in fact connected to it?

If so, what is the best way to
get overall connectivity information, other than pinging a given host
several times until it reveals all its neighbors?

Thanks, A.
